There are many misconceptions about what being a member of Rotary entails. This page tries to clarify precisely what Rotary is, and, just as importantly, what it isn't.
Rotary is a global network of service volunteers. Being a Rotarian is a fulfilling role, and Rotarians can get involved as much or as little as their time will allow.
Clubs meet on a regular basis, which allows members to build firm friendships.
Rotary clubs are groups of like-minded people united in their desire to make a difference in their community and the world.
At club level, members devote their time and energy to promoting service to the community and to raising funds for local, national and international charities.
Rotary isn't a religious, political, or nationalistic organization.
It isn’t some kind of secret society. There are no secret handshakes or rituals.
It isn’t a social club, although strong fellowship is a key component that unites Rotary in its projects. Members are expected to make a contribution to the life of the club, to the extent that they are able.
It isn't "an old boy's club" dominated by a established group of cronies, nor is it male only. It is intentionally structured to offer leadership opportunities to all its members. Rotary actively encourages diversity and recognizes it as a strength.
We meet in the back room of the Bleeding Wolf, Scholar Green (below) every Wednesday evening at 7.30pm, except on weeks containing a Bank Holiday.
